Top R.J. Hampton News

  • Magic's R.J. Hampton: Finishes in double figures

    Hampton posted 10 points (4-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist and one steal over 29 minutes during Friday's 107-99 loss to Philadelphia.

    Hampton got off to a strong start in this one, knocking down three of his first five attempts from the field in the first half. He's scored in double figures in two of his last three contests and has also recorded at least one steal in each matchup over this brief stretch. Hampton has logged 20-plus minutes in three straight games after averaging 14.4 minutes through his first 13 games of the 2022-23 campaign. However, with Markelle Fultz (toe) on the verge of a return, Hampton's role could be reduced.

  • Magic's R.J. Hampton: Fourth-year option declined

    The Magic declined Hampton's $4.2 million team option for the 2023-24 season Monday, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports.

    Hampton has had an inconsistent role for Orlando early in the 2022-23 campaign, as he's averaged 5.3 points and 2.0 rebounds in 15.0 minutes per game. The 21-year-old will now become an unrestricted free agent following this season.

  • Magic's R.J. Hampton: Logs seven minutes Monday

    Hampton amassed zero points (0-1 FG) across seven minutes during Monday's 115-102 loss to the Knicks.

    Hampton continues to find himself on the outside looking in when it comes to playing time, barely touching the floor in the loss. Given the Magic are still without two of their primary guard options, it's reasonable to assume Hampton could find himself out of the rotation completely at some point in the near future.

  • Magic's R.J. Hampton: Back in starting lineup

    Hampton will start Sunday's game against the Heat, Dan Savage of the Magic's official site reports.

    With Jalen Suggs (ankle) sidelined again, Hampton will draw his 14th start of the season. Across his previous 13 starts, Hampton has averaged 7.8 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 27.4 minutes per game.

  • Magic's R.J. Hampton: Solid line off bench

    Hampton registered 12 points (5-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds and five assists in 35 minutes during Thursday's 128-101 loss to the Hornets. He also had four turnovers.

    Hampton has now supplied back-to-back double-digit scoring efforts four times this season. While he was inefficient Thursday, he led Orlando in rebounding and trailed only Markelle Fultz in assists. Hampton logged a team-high 35 minutes, but he's dragged down by his lowly 37.9 field-goal percentage.

  • Magic's R.J. Hampton: Will operate off bench Tuesday

    Hampton will come off the bench during Tuesday's contest against the Cavaliers, Dan Savage of the Magic's official site reports.

    With Jalen Suggs returning from a 10-game absence due to an ankle injury, Hampton will revert to his usual bench role Tuesday. As a reserve this season (48 games), the second-year guard has averaged 7.2 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 19.8 minutes per game.

  • Magic's R.J. Hampton: Complies with mundane existence

    Hampton supplied seven points (2-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one rebound, two assists and one steal over 27 minutes during Wednesday's 127-110 loss to Washington.

    Averaging 7.3 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game this season, Hampton produced at his typical levels Wednesday. His player efficiency rating grades in the bottom-20 across all qualifying players. Luckily, supporting his case for development is the fact that Jalen Suggs also ranks among the bottom 20 in that figure. Nonetheless, outside of improved three-point shooting, Hampton has failed to show many signs of positive growth in year three.

  • Magic's R.J. Hampton: Adds 14 points Wednesday

    Hampton tallied 14 points (5-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and one steal during Wednesday's 118-102 loss to the Thunder.

    Hampton logged his fifth straight start and finally rewarded the Magic coach staff with his first double-figure scoring performance since March 13 against the 76ers. The guard's seven rebounds were also the most he has totaled since grabbing eight against the Bulls on Jan. 3. Hampton is averaging 8.2 points since entering the starting five March 15.

  • Magic's R.J. Hampton: Nice assist, defensive production

    Hampton provided five points (2-6 FG, 1-4 3Pt), three rebounds, five assists and three steals across 28 minutes during Tuesday's 94-90 victory over the Warriors.

    Hampton has started four straight games with Jalen Suggs (ankle) missing time. He tied his season-high three steals Tuesday while passing well, which helped counter his poor shooting. He's a deep-league streaming option while Suggs remains out.

  • Magic's R.J. Hampton: Meager output in loss

    Hampton accumulated six points (2-8 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds and two assists in 31 minutes during Tuesday's 150-108 loss to the Nets.

    Hampton drew the start in place of Jalen Suggs (ankle), but he struggled to find any consistency during the blowout loss. Across eight contests in March, the second-year guard has averaged just 6.4 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 26.0 minutes per game.

  • Magic's R.J. Hampton: Will start for Suggs

    Hampton will start Tuesday's game against Brooklyn, Dan Savage of OrlandoMagic.com reports.

    With Jalen Suggs (ankle) sidelined, Hampton will move into the starting five for his third start since the All-Star break and just his fourth start of the entire season. Hampton has mostly flopped in those three previous opportunities, averaging just 8.3 points, 3.0 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 1.3 steals across 28.3 minutes per game.

  • Magic's R.J. Hampton: Shifts to bench

    Hampton will come off the bench Wednesday against the Pelicans, Khobi Price of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

    With Jalen Suggs (ankle) set to rejoin the lineup after a two-game absence, Hampton will shift to a bench role. The 20-year-old is averaging 7.3 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.4 assists over 19.9 minutes per game this season.

  • Magic's R.J. Hampton: Starting for injured Suggs

    Hampton is starting Saturday's game against the Grizzlies, Khobi Price of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

    With Jalen Suggs (ankle) out, Hampton gets the nod and should see increased usage. In his one previous start this season, he posted 15 points and four assists in 27 minutes.

  • Magic's R.J. Hampton: Generates 11 points off bench

    Hampton (ankle) ended with 11 points (3-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-6 FT), five rebounds, four assists and two blocks across 23 minutes during Friday's 119-111 win over Houston.

    Hampton hadn't suited up since Jan. 19 due to knee and ankle injuries, and he faced another setback following the All-Star break when he sprained his ankle during Friday's shootaround. However, he was able to appear off the bench against the Rockets, and he generated solid fantasy results with his well-rounded performance. Hampton has come off the bench in all but one of his appearances this season and has been a fairly inconsistent fantasy contributor.

  • Magic's R.J. Hampton: Available Friday

    Hampton (ankle) is available for Friday's game against the Rockets.

    Hampton sprained his ankle during Friday's shootaround, but he'll be able to play through the issue against the Rockets after testing his injury during pregame warmups. He hasn't played since Jan. 19 due to knee and ankle injuries, so he could face a minutes restriction during his first game back on the court.

  • Magic's R.J. Hampton: Sprains ankle during shootaround

    Hampton (ankle) is questionable for Friday's matchup with the Rockets, Dan Savage of the Magic's official site reports.

    Hampton hasn't played since Jan. 19 due to knee and ankle injuries, but he was trending in the right direction and was expected to be available Friday. However, after his setback during shootaround, it appears he may be sidelined for a 15th straight game.
